Luke Campbell thinks that he’ll have come out victorious against WBA/WBO lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko on August 31 in London, UK. The 31-year-old Campbell is a big underdog in this fight and many expect him to lose in the same fashion as fellow countryman Anthony Crolla. Campbell will have the fans on his side, but that may not be enough for him to win, reports Boxing 24.
Lomchenko destroyed Crolla in four rounds last April in Los Angeles, California. Former WBA 135 pound champion Crolla (34-7-3, 13 KOs) took a frightful beating before the fight was halted with him lying bleeding and battered on the canvas.
Campbell (20-2, 16 KOs) fighting for a world title for the second time in his six-year pro career, and he’s hoping to have better luck in the scoring than he did when challenge Jorge Linares for his WBA lightweight title in September 2017.
“They all get beat in the end, don’t they? Sooner or later. I believe I will beat him. I’m fighting the elite of the elite. “I’m confident in the 19 years that I’ve put into this sport, always being disciplined,” said Campbell to skysports.com.
